What will you learn with NGINX Fundamentals?
NGINX is a high performance, open source web application accelerator that helps more than 37% of the world's busiest websites deliver more content, faster, to its users. NGINX Fundamentals is a hands-on course in which you will learn to install, configure, and maintain NGINX.
